Currently, one has to set the protocol to "ext" which defaults to "rsh" and
use "CVS_RSH" env variable to use ssh. However, many third party tools have
started using "extssh" protocol (unofficially, I guess). 

One such example is the cvs plugin that comes with eclipse. The problem with
extensions is that cvs can no longer be used from CLI once it inserts the
"extssh" protocol in the CVS/Root file. It would be great if core cvs can
support extssh protocol in the official version itself.
